Default pre 72' cj5 lift question

hey i gotta 66 cj5 and i bought it with a 4 inch lift. i was wondering if it is really necessary to have the tie rods parallel to the ground. because i know all the newer (72 onward) have a dropped pittman arm that you can buy, but my 66 has a bellcrank and i cant find any info online about lowering it. should i just say screw it and hook up my suspension dampener, or is there such thing as a lowered bellcrank. (i couldnt tell you how it drives because i just got this thing, and wouldnt know about wobble)


thanks -marc

I always converted mine to a Saginaw box if I lifted them over a couple of inches. Mine were not parallel to the ground and I didn't have trouble.
